About Us

Regator is a family of products focused on high-quality, topical online content. Founded in November 2007 and launched publicly in August 2008, Regator is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

Its products are:

  • Regator.com: Curated by human editors, this popular blog directory features well-written blogs on over 500 topics as well as trends, monitoring, and more.
  • Regator Platform: This API gives developers access to Regator's semantic algorithms, trends data, and automated data-enrichment services.
  • Regator Breaking News: This service for journalists and bloggers provides the latest breaking stories in real-time.
  • Regator Lite and Regator Premium for iPhone: These apps provide tools for reading, finding, and sharing quality blog content on the go.
  • Regator Widgets: These free widgets allow bloggers to display Regator trends, searches, or posts on their websites.

Regator is committed to providing value to the bloggers in its directory. In addition to the endorsement they receive as a result of being selected by Regator's editors (Regator has roughly an 85% rejection rate for nominated blogs), they receive referral traffic and increased exposure with no strings attached. Regator uses RSS feeds to provide content that is well within Fair Use guidelines and always requires that users visit the source blog to read the full text of any post. Regator's goal is to connect quality blogs with people who want to read them.

Its cofounders are:
